During 2013 I undertook to find out whether there was interest in rejuvenating a COR SIG. As an independent consultant without the infrastructure of a large organisation to draw upon my approach had its limitations but I sought to make it as open and transparent as possible - perhaps as COR focused an approach as possible ....
From a web-based survey of ORS members I received fifty-nine responses, of which thirty-two supported having a COR SIG. One respondent was not in favour and twenty-five were undecided. Following on from the survey a workshop was organised at the OR55 conference at Exeter where people sought to explore how a COR SIG could/should be developed.
Since OR55 there have been further discussions and exchanges about how to take the development of a COR SIG forward. We now have a core group of people interested in developing the COR agenda and it is time to reconstitute a committee and move forwards.
Our first meeting will be an online conference on 26 March 2014. We'll let you know how it goes.
